Applicants with secondary or previous education in a foreign country must demonstrate English language proficiency. Proficiency may be demonstrated by submission of acceptable TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS or proof that the language of instruction for the secondary or post-secondary credentialing institution was English. Transcript evaluations may be completed on unofficial transcripts; however, official documentation must be received and verified before admission may be granted and the applicant may enroll.
